At Baker Chiropractic, you are provided with the combined knowledge and unique abilities of these respected and reputable doctors. Dr. Patrick, Dr. Paul, Dr. Brock and Dr. Joe are all graduates of the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic.  Palmer College of Chiropractic was founded in 1897 and is the first school of chiropractic in the world. Dr. Matt, Dr. Garrett and Dr. Kelly are graduates of Life University School of Chiropractic. Dr. Patrick, Dr. Paul, Dr. Matt, Dr. Brock, Dr. Garrett, Dr. Joe and Dr. Kelly all received highly specialized education and training in the human body’s central nervous system and how problems with the central nervous system can cause poor health, illness, disorders, diseases and injuries.

Doctors of Chiropractic go through schooling similar to medical doctors. In fact, for the first two years of training are almost identical. After that, medical students will focus on pharmacology (drugs), critical care and surgery while chiropractic students focus solely on the central nervous system, how subluxations impact the human body and how removing these subluxations can stop the pain, restore the body’s powerful healing powers and promote true health. Since 1994, Baker Chiropractic has been providing people of all ages throughout the greater Cincinnati area with the highest level of health care and guidance for healthy living. We can help you too.

Get to Know the People at Baker Chiropractic

Dr. Patrick Baker

I was born and raised in Ohio along with my twin brother, Dr. Paul Baker. At a very young age, both of our eyes were opened to the power of chiropractic care. I suffered from asthma and this condition prevented me from doing a lot of the things all kids should be able to do. Our father was a doctor of osteopathic medicine and like most doctors, treated my asthma by administering shots and prescribing medications and the use of inhalers. All of which are very scary and inconvenient to a young child.

When I was six years old, my father took me to a cousin who was a doctor of chiropractic. He was able to properly diagnose the cause of my asthma and successfully treat me with chiropractic care, curing me of that condition and enabling me to do things I was never able to do before. From that moment on, my brother and I were on a mission to become chiropractors and help give people back their health and well being like our cousin was able to give us. At that young age, I developed a love for health, nutrition and the benefits a chiropractic care. That knowledge and understanding was a tremendous advantage for me as a competitive high school athlete and a body builder. I take great pleasure and satisfaction in being a chiropractor as well as a Personal Fitness Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach.

Dr. Paul Baker

I was born and raised in Ohio along with my twin brother, Dr. Patrick Baker. Much like Dr. Patrick, my eyes were opened to the power of chiropractic care. I suffered from painful gastrointestinal problems. Our father was a doctor of osteopathic medicine and like most doctors, treated me with prescription medications. These medications treated certain symptoms of my gastrointestinal problems but they did not resolve my problem. Only after being placed in the care of our cousin who was a doctor of chiropractic was my condition properly diagnosed and treated.

Through his chiropractic care techniques and nutrition recommendations, my gastrointestinal issues were cured. Relieving that gastrointestinal pain placed my brother and me on a mission to become chiropractors. We both became very passionate about this direction for our lives and developed a deep love and appreciation for optimal health, nutrition and chiropractic care. This was a huge advantage for me as a competitive high school athlete and a body builder. After nearly 20 years as a doctor of chiropractic, it remains a very fulfilling and satisfying feeling to give people back their health and well being just like our cousin was able to give us. I take great pleasure and satisfaction in being a chiropractor as well as a Personal Fitness Trainer and Strength and Conditioning Coach.

Dr. Matt Finke

Dr. Matt Finke Baker Chiropractic and Wellness Madeira, OhioI was born and raised in Ohio. I was introduced to the power of Chiropractic care while in high school. I suffered a shoulder dislocation while playing football in middle school, which eventually became a chronic situation in high school. I was fortunate enough to have a Chiropractor that volunteered time as our team physician who helped my injury tremendously. As I began to research Chiropractic on my own, its philosophy of ‘the body’s ability to heal itself through proper nerve system function’ made perfect sense to me. That’s when I decided to become a Chiropractor and help people regain their health naturally.

Chiropractic care has been the major component of health and wellness for my life. It provides my family and I the foundation of a lifestyle that enables us to avoid sickness, illness, disease and any medications!  I am very excited and passionate about sharing this principle with as many people as possible.

Prior to joining Baker Chiropractic, I was in solo practice for 9 years. When I met Drs. Paul & Patrick and we discussed the possibility of ‘joining forces’, I immediately knew this was the way to be more impactful in the community. They share my passion for being a Doctor of Chiropractic and I am delighted to be a part of this team.

Dr. Brock Frear

Dr. Brock Frear Baker Chiropractic and WellnessI grew up in West Chester, Ohio and graduated from Lakota East High School. I went to college at Miami University in Oxford and received a degree in Exercise Science.

It was my always my career goal to become a doctor. However, I have to admit that becoming a chiropractic physician was more of a pleasant surprise than a deliberate plan. Like many people, I didn’t fully understand how comprehensive and powerful chiropractic care is and how beneficial of a role it can play in a person’s overall life. Only after both of my parents and I all became patients at Baker Chiropractic did I begin to realize and appreciate the full potential of this safe and effective approach to health care. It was at this time that my career path and passion began to come into focus.

Inspired and encouraged by Dr. Baker, I was motivated to become a chiropractor. I attended Palmer Chiropractic College in Port Orange, Florida receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in June 2013.

I look forward to serving the families of this community and providing them with the high quality health care and wellness guidance that has become synonymous with Baker Chiropractic.

Dr. Garrett Knuckles

I grew up in Loveland, Ohio and graduated from Little Miami High School. I went to college at Ohio University in Athens and received a degree in Community Health.

I was always interested in health care and knew I wanted to pursue a career where I could help people and make a difference in their lives.

While playing high school football I injured my leg and was taken to a family friend who was a chiropractor. After experiencing first-hand the effectiveness of chiropractic care in resolving my leg problems, I was inspired to become a chiropractor.  I learned chiropractic care is not just about relieving pain. It’s so much more than that. It’s a lifestyle and a whole body approach to health.

I attended Life University in Marietta, Georgia receiving my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in December 2013.

I look forward to serving the families of this community, teaching them how important chiropractic care is to their overall health and providing them with the high quality care and guidance that has been delivered by Baker Chiropractic and Wellness for the last 20 years.

Dr. Joe Fields

Dr. Joe Fields Baker Chiropractic and Wellness

I grew up in Pickerington, Ohio. My first introduction to chiropractic was as a young child, going with my dad for his back pain. At the time I was just happy my dad could play with me again. From that time on I wanted to become a chiropractor. My choice was made definite when I experienced the healing power of chiropractic myself. As a college athlete, I injured my back lifting weights. I couldn’t even attend class. I visited the school trainer who couldn’t help, he sent me to a local medical doctor who prescribed drugs which also didn’t help at all. Fortunately after a few days, my parents were able to take me to their chiropractor. He was able to properly diagnose and treat my condition. Within a few visits, I was able to focus in the class and within a few weeks I was back to full speed on the football field. With the miraculous impact chiropractic had on my life, I knew I needed to become a chiropractor and share this safe, effective and drugless approach to healthcare. Inspired by my experience, I attended the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA where I received my Doctorate of Chiropractic Degree in October 2004. Prior to joining Baker Chiropractic, I practiced in Columbus, OH and Lexington, KY. I met Drs. Patrick and Paul after moving to the Cincinnati area to start a satellite campus of my Church in Milford. I immediately knew that our faith and philosophy were congruent and that as a team we would be able to make a positive impact in our community by providing the highest quality chiropractic care and wellness guidance that Baker Chiropractic is well known for.

Dr. Kelly Duffner

Dr Kelly Duffner Baker Chiropractic and Wellness

I hail from the small town of Bucyrus, Ohio. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to Chiropractic at an early age as I watched my father receive Chiropractic treatment to recover from a low back injury at work. During my high school athletic years I started receiving regular Chiropractic care and noticed increased gains in strength and speed as a result of obtaining proper spinal alignment.

I have always had a strong interest in health and nutrition so becoming a Chiropractor was an easy decision for me. I packed my things and moved to sunny Atlanta, Georgia to attend the largest Chiropractic institution in the world, Life University. There, the majority of my undergraduate studies included coursework in Exercise Physiology and Kinesiology. I then earned my Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Life University in 2012 with a focus in Functional Nutrition and the detrimental effects of the Vertebral Subluxation Complex.

After meeting over several weeks with Dr. Paul and Dr. Patrick, it was evident that Baker Chiropractic shared the same values and goals as myself. I look forward to helping guide the people from the greater Cincinnati area to overcoming their health challenges naturally.

Our doctors and staff members will welcome you and make you feel at home each time you visit. Also remember, this is chiropractic care. We are able to conduct adjustments while you are wearing your everyday clothes. No need for those uncomfortable gowns that tie in the back found in most medical doctor’s offices.

Your First Visit: At your first visit, Dr. Paul, Dr. Patrick or Dr. Matt will meet with you privately to discuss your health problem, perform a preliminary exam and determine what diagnostic tests need to be performed. In most cases, you will then be directed to a local radiologist to have x-rays taken. We will also schedule a follow-up visit to review your x-rays and other diagnostic tests. Your first visit will take approximately 1 hour.

Your Second Visit: At your second visit, the doctor will meet with you privately to discuss the results of your preliminary exam and test, his plans for corrective action and he will answer any questions that you may have. He will then proceed to perform your first chiropractic adjustment and you will be scheduled for a series of follow up visits. Your second visit will take approximately 1 hour.

Follow Up Visits: At your follow up visit or series of visits, you will almost always be taken immediately into the treatment area to begin your care and rehabilitation treatment. Once you are done with your chiropractic adjustment, therapy and rehabilitation exercises, we will confirm your next appointment. Your follow up visits will take approximately 30 – 45 minutes.
